Educational, Great acting, Thoughtful, Powerful, Resonant

See it if you want a way to talk to your kids about racism in society and how we can all overcome fear and be brave to move towards a more just world

Don't see it if this is a really important story so lovingly told. I’d really encourage anyone with kids over 7 to see it.

Slow, Disappointing

See it if If you are 10 or under and if you are intrested in black history, with almost passable performances. The "Ruby Bridges" segment was GREAT!

Don't see it if If you are over 10. If you are bored easily, if you can't sit for 45 minutes....

Intelligent, Great singing, Entertaining, Enchanting, Clever

See it if Amazing plot structure... linear and ez to follow. The chronological timeline aides in retelling past events in the Civil Rights movement.

Don't see it if If you have an aversion to learning black 🖤 American history.

"The show is geared toward kids 7 and up, but adults will find much to value in it too...Playwright Nambi E. Kelley and director Daniel Carlton don't try to frighten kids in the audience with violent imagery of protests, but they don't dumb down the material, either...Call-and-response numbers, together with Jessica Wardell's colorful set, David Lander's lively lighting, and Yu'seph Cornish's modern-day and 1960s-style costumes, get the audience feeling like a community with a common goal of fairness and justice."
